|Role||Seventh Imperator of the UEE|
|Years Held||2697 - 2701|
Astrid Messer (also Astrid Messer VII) was a ursurpator to the throne of the Empire of Earth. The granddaughter of Corsen Messer V seized control over the Empire in 2697 from his cousin Samuel Messer. A civil war ensued which ended with her assassination in 2701.
She seized power from her aunt Illyana Messer, after the latter died of a sudden stroke in 2697.
During her reign, she expanded censorship, and ordered mass arrests of journalists who spoke against the conflict between her and Samuel Messer, her cousin and rightful successor of Illyana Messer. At the time when Astrid took office, Samuel, and some of his mother Illyana's loyal agents smuggled him away from Earth, and hid him for many years. Eventually Astrid was assassinated by Samual's agents in 2701, leading him to ascend to Imperator.
